    Hosa Technology MIT-156 reviews

    MIT-156 Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MIT-156 I purchased this to connect an Azden SGM-2X microphone to my consumer-level camcorder (Sony DCR-DVD201). There was an obvious hiss in the resulting audio footage. The overall sound was much better than the built-in camcorder microphone, so I was by no means displeased. However, being rather picky I wanted to eliminate the hiss, so I purchased a BeachTek DXA-2s XLR adapter and the hiss has been diminished (but that means I am no longer using this cable). This cable works fine, and I do recommend it. It is always a possibility that my camcorder could have had something to do with the hiss that this cable couldn't rememdy but the XLR adapter could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MIT-156 Hosa makes a number of similar devices to this unit. Others are cheaper than this but, I suspect, that they don't include the transformer.This adaptor/transformer will take a dynamic mic and let you connect it to a standard 1/8 stereo mic jack on many devices. It works perfectly .. AND .. gives you a signal on both sides of the stereo jack (dual mono).I haven't used it often .. so I can't comment on it's reliability .. but it does what it is supposed to do .. VERY nicely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from When your input is important. Shooting multi-cam videos with up to three cameras requires a reliable source for quality sound. Connecting the MIT-156 Matching Transformer to my Audio-Technia shotgun mikes ensures that the sound I wed to the DV tape is comparably matched. To date, Hosa Technology has not failed to deliver the wide spectrum of audio from the sources to the media that my customers expect. This is a 100% improvement over the non-transformer cables that I previously used. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the results I get from the MIT-156 cables.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great accessory This works great with the shotgun mic. however, when it plugs into the shotgun AT897 mic it is a little loose. and i recommend getting a longer cord. This one is too short for my uses. I would recommend this to a friend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from MIT-156 Low to High Impedance Matching Used for Conversion from Mini (1/8 / headphone type) jack to F-XLR connector. Use mainly for Shotgun mic on smaller video cameras. Works and functions as expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone Matching This is a great way to use my pro level balanced mics on my computer or digital audio recorders and maintain the quality all the way through.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Does exactly what I need. I use it to connect my Rode NTG2 to my HV30.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed, for now This is about as compact as you can get. I needed a cable to use my Azden shotgun mic with my Canon HV20 camcorder, and the B&H rep suggested the Hosa. It works fine... I am no audio pro, but I have found no problems with the cable. I ended up using a bracket to raise my Azden up by 4, and the cable is JUST long enough to reach the mic input on the camera. Being a newbie to external mics, I now realize I need a longer cable for boom pole or mic stand use.
